The 1884 Market House is a unique shopping experience featuring antiques, artisans, and a central market. Join us in downtown Waynesboro, Pennsylvania.
The 1884 Market House, a building that housed a family-owned furniture business for four decades will continue its rich history of serving customers in a unique downtown setting and as an anchor building in the newly proposed “Antiques and Arts District,” in Waynesboro.
The 1884 Market House, formerly Schier’s Furniture Market, located just off Main Street in Waynesboro, will soon play host to vintage antiques, handmade collectibles, arts and much more.
According to Harry Morningstar Jr., renovations to the 20,000 square-foot facility have been made to set the stage for the area’s largest and most unique marketplace. His inspiration is fueled by the success that antique vendors such as James & Jess House of Goods and Wildflower Marketplace have had in Waynesboro. Additionally, Morningstar highlighted Mainstreet Waynesboro’s Farmer’s Market that attracted thousands of people to Main Street Park each weekend over the past several months and the talents exhibited by the Greater Waynesboro Arts Alliance.
Morningstar would like to add another home for creativity in the hopes of solidifying an “Antiques and Arts District” in downtown Waynesboro, while at the same time welcoming everyone from artisan bakers to candlestick makers. The concept isn’t aimed at competing with the existing markets, but rather to expand the resources to make Waynesboro a prime destination for shoppers hunting antiques and arts. Morningstar feels that acquiring more talented artisans and craftsmen will only strengthen the market of creativity.
In order to bring the 1884 Market House to life, Morningstar is offering nearly 150 spaces for vendors at an absolute bargain.

He added that the 1884 Market House will be fully staffed seven days a week allowing vendors the option on whether they need to be on hand to shop keep. Morningstar also explained that the door is open to vendors outside of those that specialize in vintage, collectibles and art, acknowledging that there is plenty of room for folks who love reclaimed and repurposed merchandise, the potters wheel, home décor and even handmade artisan soaps and fresh flowers.
We are also aggressively looking for a coffee shop with some fresh baked goods too. “I consider brewers, distillers and wineries artisans as well,” Morningstar said.
